Is it bad to eat a whole mango for a one off. Also is it bad to suck the mango pit/seed and is it bad to eat a tiny bit of the skin?

No. No. No.: People eat one mango at a time, the entire mango. Here in California, we buy them by the box, which is about 18-24 mangoes. Nibbling all the good stuff off the pit is what we do. A few people like a little bit of the skin for flavor; most people just toss the skin. As long as a person is not allergic to mango flesh, skin, or sap, it's fine to eat a mango. ...Read more

My bf suffering testiscular cyst, its like a big mango size. Is there any cure or somehow reduce the size?

Is there a diagnosis: Has he been formally tested and diagnosed with a cyst or is this what you and he feel that it is? He may need an ultrasound to know for sure what is causing the swelling but it could be a few things, such as fluid collections between the different tissues of the testicle and scrotum. Many of these things go away on their own, but if big enough may need medical attention. See a doctor for testing. ...Read more

Is garcina gambosia safe at 2100 mg a day? Can it be taken with african mango?

Why would you take?: Even though it was mentioned by dr. Oz (who generally isn't very accurate on medical topics), it doesn't seem to decrease weight, fat breakdown, or energy expenditure in overweight people. There is some mixed evidence that garcinia might help people feel full but this needs further study; it's too early to recommend. T can cause nausea, headaches, etc., so can't be recommended at this time. ...Read more

How much mango can 18 months baby eat per day? Contains lots of salts load over the kidneys?
